INSTRUCTIONS FOR ADJUSTING AND
OPERATING JOHN DEERE RATCHET
TYPE ROPE-CONTROLLED REEL
This attachment permits the operator to raise or lower the reel from
the tractor without leaving the tractor seat.
Before operating reel, lubricate racks so reel will slide up and down
smoothly. See Lubrication Chart on following page.
To raise the reel, pull on rope until j^ng^eT^'' Figure 1, com-
pletes a full stroke. Each .complete stroke raises reel approximately 1-1/2
inches. To lower thTreel, pull on rope until raising lever has completed
a full stroke, then slacken rope enough to allow raising pawl "B," Figure 1,
to disengage from raising gear; pull on rope until raising pawl comes in
contact with lock pawl "C," Figure 1, disengaging it from the raising
gear, thereby freeing reel and allowing it to slide down. By pulling hard
on rope, a braking action can be applied
to prevent reel from dropping too
fast. This causes lock paw^C^Figure
1, to exert pressure on brakeShoe
angle "D," Figure 1, which, in turn,
binds on right-hand rack. By releasing
rope quickly the lock pawl will again
contact raising gear and stop the
downward movement of reel.
If operator wishes to lower reel by
hand, place four fingers under raising
lever "A," Figure 1, and press on
raising pawl "B," Figure 1, with thumb,
pull up on lever until raising pawl
comes in contact with lock pawl "C,"
Figure 1. This will allow reel to slide
To move reel forward or back, loosen
lock bolt "A," Figure 2, and lock handle
"B," Figure 5. Tighten after each ad-
Figure l justment.

If this attachment is to be in-
stalled on a machine in the field, it
is necessary to remove reel complete

10. (Figure 5) Pin and cotter PK 669 H gear to left-hand end of reel
shaft, being sure that reel pipe is level and gears are in corresponding
teeth on both racks.
* When using Ratchet Type Rope-Controlled Reel on a Flax Roll Combine, remove this part
from PK 447 H Pipe Clamp and attach clamp directly to flax roll main drive chainjshield.
11. (Figures 3 and 4) Assemble PK 446 H raising pawl in raising level
with pivot pin. Cotter at both ends. Hook small spring to raising pawl
and to raising lever, as shown in Figure 4.

Figure 3, and move reel to left or right until centered. Tighten bolts.
17. Raise and lower reel. If it binds on racks, remove left-hand gear,
see "10," Figure 5, and raise or lower left-hand end of reel until it is free.
Replace gear. When doing this be sure that raising pawl comes down far
enough to take two teeth on raising gear. Adjust at set screw "F," Fig-

Farm Accidents Can Be Prevented
uritk t fousi Jlelp,
NO accident prevention program can be successful with-
out the whole-hearted cooperation of the person who
is directly responsible for the operation of equipment.
To read accident reports from all over the Country is
to be convinced that a large number of accidents can be
prevented only by the operator anticipating the result be-
fore the accident is caused and doing something about it.
No power-driven equipment, whether it be transportation
or processing, whether it be on the highway, in the harvest
field, or in the industrial plant, can be safer than the man
who is at the controls. If farm accidents are to be pre-
vented — and they can be prevented — it will be done by the
operators who accept a full measure of their responsibility.
It is true that the designer, the manufacturer, the safety
engineer can help; and they will help, but their combined
efforts can be wiped out by a single careless act of the
It is said that "the best kind of a safety device is a care-
ful operator." We ask you to be that kind of an operator.
